No, I remember about the Torch Fire, but not this one, maybe I forget.

Is it even fireworks related?

Well, then choosing to do light show probably got nothing to do with fire safety. This sort of accidents could have happen any day.

Yeah, that's the advantage of laser shows over fireworks. If you've paid for it once, you can set it all off again at any time, without having to pay more than the cost of electricity. And maintenance, I suppose, but it would still be vastly cheaper than firework displays.
